Goat Thing of the Day: Killers and Job Stealers

Since most of the news about goats this week is bad – they are either evil killers or destroying America – let’s begin with something cute and cuddly and nice that Rene sent in. These photos were taken at Brookdale Farms in Hollis, NH. Imagine cute cuddly music playing in the background. Let’s celebrate these caprine creatures before we cower in fear of them, shall we?

And now on to the nastiness that has taken over this country of late.

One nasty goat in Olympic National Park in Washington actually killed a guy, did you hear about this? (Many people sent this in, too many to count and thank, actually.) An aggressive mountain goat gored a man and then stared down anybody who tried to help him. ACK!

In response to this story, Buzzfeed provides a list of 14 Goats that want to kill you.

In other news, it’s festival season in Nepal, India, and as we learn from Brian Smith in his blog, Mr. Smith goes to Kathmandu, “it’s not a good time to be a goat in Nepal” right now.

Did you catch Stephen Colbert’s story last week about how goats are destroying America because they are taking jobs away from landscapers? Goat haters also complained that goats leave little things behind too, making for messy clean-up. I tried to tell the lovely people over at Comedy Central that Nanny Goats in Panties was the perfect solution to keep those goat berries at bay, but they have yet to respond with an exclusive interview. Here’s the video…

  1. This is hilarious! I did see that Colbert bit; gotta love the Colbert Report!
    We have lots of goat pictures to show (why do so many places have petting zoos with goats?) that I should send your way.
    Stopping by from Twitter. So glad to be following you!

    I’m sorry. Goats are creepy. It’s those rectangular pupils that just creep me right out. My wife, on the other had, loves them. She’d have a farm full of them if she could.

  3. So this might sound strange, but in support of goats everywhere, and you, I just purchased a 2011 calendar.

    I’ve been on vacation and just catching up on my reading. Hope all is good with you.

    Cheers, jj

    Here’s the thing – the news about people is always bad! At least goats only have one bad news day in my memory.

    It was a fierce goat week wasnt it? Miss Pasqualina has got the cutest pose I’ve seen in a goat in a while!
    I thank you and Michelle for sharing…

    A goat that kills? Imagine that! Hard to believe. Especially when you see Miss April there. So adorable and innocent!! Sigh!

  7. Liz says:

    Miss April is a hottie.

    I can’t believe I went to that fabulous petting zoo when we visited Chicago, and didn’t think to snap some shots of goats for you. Shame, shame.

  8. Jayne says:

    Pasqualina is gorgeous. And what a flirtatious look one her face. I think our hair is the same color. I want her.

  9. Wow – goats really are trying to take over the world. I wonder how well they trim trees? 🙂

  10. The Stephen Colbert show KILLS me. That video CRACKED ME UP!

  11. Loved the Colbert episode! I was thinking of you the entire time I was watching it!

    How sweet that little Miss April Pasqualina is! How could that ever be a bad thang???

    Have a beautiful day filled with warm fuzzy blessings!!! :o)

    Michael the goat tried to kill the publicist. Flipped her right over his head.
    This could be why Michael the goat is no longer on the Farm. It is not good to try and kill the publicist. She brings treats….
